Pennsylvania DUI Law: Good News And Bad News
In most cases, a first-time DUI offender will be eligible for a diversionary program called Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition or ARD.
ARD is a 12-month unsupervised probation that can lead to dismissal of the charges and expungement of your record upon completion of the program.
However, a second DUI offense within 10 years of a first offense, even if resolved through ARD, has serious consequences, usually including jail time.
A DUI conviction can have lifelong consequences and disqualify you from certain jobs or professions.
There are hundreds of possible issues that can impact your ability to defend a DUI charge. It is critical that an experienced DUI attorney review your options before you proceed.
